#1 Grandson starts a new career

” Me help, Papa!” Three years old is young to start an apprenticeship; but very appealing, especially when a large rolling pin is involved. Two rustic pots were thrown with a little help from Papa who doubled as “Health & Safety responsible adult.” I had a "Me help, Papa"little lie down after an accident-free 20 minutes or so!

New clay, new challenge

Someone gave me some Potclays white stoneware clay. How far could it go and support its own weight? Making big bowls is a way to find out so here goes!

Wel, nearly white! It throws well and holds up well for wide bowls and tagines. Wonder what the finished glazed ware looks like? (See elsewhere the blue tagine for the finished article.)
